Türkü Özlüm Çelik has recently joined MPI MiS as a postdoctoral researcher. She completed her PhD studies at the Institut de recherche mathématique de Rennes under the supervision of Christophe Ritzenthaler and Sylvain Duquesne. She is looking forward to defending her PhD thesis on August 31st. Everybody is invited!
She loves making abstract concepts in algebraic geometry down to earth and she is especially interested in algebraic curves and their Jacobians. Those two classes of objects are linked via theta characteristics. One of her favorite books on the subject is the classical source: "Algebraic geometry and theta functions" by Arthur Coble.
At the moment she is working on a project on space sextics and their tritangents, jointly with Lynn Chua.
